THE MANDATE Episode 8: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Greetings and salutations! It’s been a minute since I last had the pleasure of presenting a new episode of The Mandate, but I’m back with a web-slinging good time. That’s right, I had the pleasure of taking in a screening of Peter Parker’s grand arrival to the MCU in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now, I know that he technically made his return in Captain America: Civil War but this is the first full length feature for the character with the creative control of Marvel. For this episode, I got with Nick Thiffault, the owner/operator/comic slinger for the online comic book store Trap Door Comics. Our expectations were high going in due to Marvel pumping out nothing but gold recently along with Tom Holland’s performance being stellar in his limited role in the Capt movie. While the episode is full of spoilers, I will not spoil the episode. Listen, like, share, repeat.

John Wren

I am John Wren; a Delco original, and thanks to a cartoon Chihuahua (surprisingly, not the small bird), most know me only by my last name. Although people think I it’s due to self-hatred, I do actually enjoy running in ridiculous races up and down mountains and have recently ventured into the world of triathlons. I used to sing for the Jersey based metalcore band Bottomfeeder ( but am now bandless. I’m the worst Buddhist known to man and if I’m given the opportunity, I will ramble on about anything and everything at great lengths, with lots of profanity. I’ve read every Stephen King book, my favorite band of all time is White Zombie, and I will need to take a week of bereavement the day Bruce Campbell dies.
